IDEA OVERLOOOOOAAAAAD- actually iv'e had this idea for a while now.

I have a HUGE idea for an original RPG game, but a slight issue, i don't know a good game programming software... any suggestions?

COMPOSED FATE IN A NUTSHELL:
Once, in a far away realm, a warrior known as Crest, whose master has recently pasted away, has received a strange message from an unknown being. A call to search for two other warriors and retrieve two legendary swords, Alpha and Omega, to destroy a force that may have the power to control one's mind.

On his journey, the rather draconian messenger tests our hero, to where he fuses his soul with Crest. Disrupting the villains plan to control him, he controls the powerful messenger... unleashing the beast inside of him.

Now Crest and the warriors must purge the evil, save his realm and the Dark realm, and prove that hes no monster.
There will be more to it, but this is the gist of it.
:D

Do you even google

P.S. That just sounds like a generic plot for a generic RPG. What makes it a huge idea?

I actually saw that, but I was swerved by the price. Then again, something as useful as an game maker wouldn't be thrown out there for free.

CF has a lot of different elements, such as sort of Card-based attacks (Example: a attack would need an item, card, or something.) Also,
the field will be to where, 1 character would have a certain amount of action points. Essentially, walking would be 1 action point, attacking is 5 or 10, 10/15 for using an item, etc.

I'm sure this has been done before, I just wanted to try this type of RPG out.

HUGE is probably an overstatement :/.

Just pirate it.
And if you want the most user friendly, moddable rpg maker, I'd go for Enterbrain's RPG Maker VX, or VX Ace.

Assuming your project reaches completion, I would strongly recommend against game maker, the file sizes are wild.
A 2 minute long demo can take up to 2 GB D:

On top of that, RPG Maker has spawned some of the greatest RPGs evar (Yume Nikki, Ib, Final Fantasy XIII, etc.).
I'd give it a closer look of I were you.

I imagine that what you've got in the thread subject is a working title, but why Composed Fate?
